Unable to cancel WebAdding event

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 23, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint


I want to cancel the WebAdding event and have the user redirected to an error page. Seems simple enough. But I cant get it to work. Heres my code:

 public override void WebAdding(SPWebEventProperties properties)
properties.Status = SPEventReceiverStatus.CancelWithRedirectUrl;
properties.RedirectUrl = "/_layouts/Custom/error.aspx";

The code executes fine but I get a "File not found" error in the browser afterwards. The ULS logs tells me that someone is trying to use a closed SPWeb (Detected use of SPRequest for previously closed SPWeb object...).

The event handler should prevent my users from creating subsites, but they should be able to create Meeting Workspaces. So it wont be enough to remove the CreateSubweb permission from the permission mask.


Thanks in advance,
Martin Bäckström

Calendar View: Unable filter Recurring Event by Start/End Time and Group by Recurring Event View

Hi All,
I have just found several issues with Calendar View from WSS 3.0:

Unable to filter by [Start Time] and [End Time]
I am not sure why these 2 columns doesn't appear in the Filtering column in the View Settings. The workaround found in the internet is to create calculated column for Start Time and and End Time. However, it doesn't work for Recurring Event, the calculated column will show only first recurring event Start Time.

Unable to use "Group By"
When I create new view in Calendar using format: "Standard View, with Expanding Recurring Events", there is no option to specify "Group By". Anyone knows how to show all recurring event in List view and grouped by Start Time (or any other column).

Thank you and apprecate for any idea.

Unable to unhook an event hooked in Static constructor


One of the static constructor in a class of our project hooks to an event handler, and i tried to placed the code to unhook the event in dispose.

when i try to invoke dispose  method of the class, the object is actually null and unable to invoke dispose.

I tried using Destructor and implementing IDisposable interface, However both the destructor as well the dispose method never get called. Are they need to be called explicitly or am i missing something?. 

Is there any other elegant way to unhook the event handler? 

Note : the event handler is hooked in the static constructor.

Any help would be appreciated.

WebAdding Event Receiver Issues


I am trying to add a WebAdding Event that cancels subsite creation and points user to a page in the layouts.  I used this post as reference: http://www.zimmergren.net/archive/2010/01/05/sp-2010-how-to-event-receivers-and-custom-error-pages.aspx.  Problem is that I cannot get the Redirect to work properly.  I've searched every post on the issue, verified the page exists in the 14/template/layouts and tried for a few days to get this to work, but keep getting an error.  I also found that this ONLY works when a web is created on the top level site collection and not in a subsite.  Am I missing someting?


public override void WebAdding(SPWebEventProperties properties)

           properties.Status = SPEventReceiverStatus.CancelWithError;
      properties.ErrorMessage = "Please fill out the following form\n" +
        "http://oursite/forms/fpages/newsite.aspx \n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n";
      properties.Cancel = true;

 Doesn't work:

public override void WebAdding(SPWebEventProperties properties)

      properties.Status = SPEventReceiverStatus.CancelWithRedirectUrl;

how to impose javascript event processing?


If I have some form control like textbox and I want the event handler to be located in the html instead of at the server side, how to do that? Of course I can copy paste javascript code in the aspx file. But is it possible to do that using some object oriented approach (ie programmatically in the code behind)?

Event ID 1011 - DefaultAppPool World Wid Web Pub. Serv. fatal communication error

We have a Windows 2003 server running IIS6 1.1 Framework. We have also installed a DNS and Active Directory in the same machine.

We're randomly getting the error you can see below. Sometimes it causes the recycling of process w3wp.exe (which on my understanding represents the application pool worker processd) and other times results on this process hanging and not responding to any request. To do iisrest temporarly solves the problem.

We were pointed to a possible permissions problem between the user we were runnig the DefaultAppPool with and registry entries used by the iis. We noticed the default predifined user we used, Network Service, wasn't found in the Active Directory, so we changed it by the default configurable user, IWAM_MACHINE_NAME, which is under the IIS_WPG Active Directory Grupo, which, in theory has the correct permissions to run the application pool.

Well, none of this worked and we are still getting this error.

This is driving us crazy and think the problem might have to do with having the Domain Controller/Active Directory and the IIS6 running on the same machine. We'll try now uninstalling this DC pointing to another one to see what happens.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Event not raised while parsing xml file



In Visual Studio 2010 ASP.NET 4.0

I want to write a procedure to validate a xml file with a xsd. I found some examples on the web but the one i chose does not work as attended. The example uses XmlReader with a XmlReaderSettings and a ValidationEventHandler.

Here is the code

Protected Sub VerifyDes(ByVal filename As String)

        Dim xslDes As XmlReaderSettings = New XmlReaderSettings()
        xslDes.Schemas.Add("", "http://www.mysite.com/xsd/ValidData.xml")
        xslDes.ValidationType = ValidationType.Schema
        xslDes.ValidationFlags = XmlSchemaValidationFlags.ReportValidationWarnings

        AddHandler xslDes.ValidationEventHandler, AddressOf xslDesValidationEventHandler

        Dim des As XmlReader = XmlReader.Create(filename, xslDes)

        While (des.Read())

        End While

    End Sub

    Protected Sub xslDesValidationEventHandler(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As ValidationEventArgs)

        'some code here
    End Sub

I tested this procedure with a xml file which was well formed but contained some elements which were not conform to the xsd.

No event or error occured. It said the file was valid.

Then i tested with a badly formed file. A XmlException was raised but nothing happened with the ValidationEventHandler.

It seems lik

    Composite control: How to bubble a textbox's TextChanged event?


    I've created a composite control that contains several controls, including a textbox. I'm trying to expose the TextChanged event of the textbox as an event on the composite control. I understand that events can be bubbled up the control hierarchy and handled at a higher level, which I've attempted to do, but I can't get the bubbled event to fire. When I drop the control on an aspx I can see the TextChanged event, I can subscribe to the event, but nothing ever happens. Any suggestions? Here is what I think is the relevant code:

    // My event
    private static readonly object EventTextChanged = new object();

    //Handle the bubbled event
    EventHandler textChangedHandler = (EventHandler)Events[EventTextChanged];
    protected override bool OnBubbleEvent(object source, EventArgs e) 
        bool handled = false;
